The Ventum makeover


When Karel learned about the custom paint work of Mike Furtek of Kcycle Design in early 2018, he couldn't pass up the opportunity of a receiving a complimentary custom paint job on his Ventum. Karel's bike was flashy and certainly stood out in a crowd.

With a new season approaching, Karel wanted a makeover on his bike. Something a bit more his style - black. This time around, Karel paid for the paint (a special and very specific type of paint) and let Mike go to work, creating another incredible design. Once again, Mike created a masterpiece and a one-of-a-kind bike. The pictures don't really capture the details of the deep shiny black paint. Mike did an incredible job hand painting this bike.

Karel also has a new handlebar setup by 51 Speedshop, along with his Dash Cycles aero combo, Alto Cycling wheels and new 4iiii dual-side powermeter.

Saturday was Karel's first time since November (IMFL) outside on his Ventum and he was riding happy for all 3.5 hours. Having a hand painted bike is certainly a luxury but seeing that bikes are kinda like art, it's only fitting that Karel has a bike that looks like an expensive painting. Karel is over the moon excited about his Ventum makeover.
